Castleford Tigers fans literally took over the Xscape entertainment complex on Friday night as the local Super League club opened a brand new Sport Superstore in the centre.
A grand opening launch event took place at 4:00pm on Friday 16th February as club welcomed fans to be the first to step inside and take a look. The whole first team squad were in attendance to meet fans as captain Michael Shenton cut the ribbon to officially open the store.
Castleford Tigers marketing manager Michelle Cooper said: “Friday nights launch event at Xscape was amazing! It was fantastic for us to see so many fans fill the mall, and the response to opening weekend has been brilliant! We’ve all been working really hard behind the scenes to bring something new to Xscape and we can now offer a whole range of sports merchandise that you can’t currently buy in store anywhere else in our area. Our first team squad were brilliant on Friday night, not only did we meet and greet fans in our new store, we then spent the evening out and about in the other units within Xscape getting to know our new neighbours. We had players bowling, dining with fans in the restaurants, having fun in the cinema, making cocktails in bars and playing Lazerzone, we really did take over Xscape in true Tigers fashion to ensure our new Castleford Tigers Sports Superstore opened with a bang!”
Speaking today Castleford Tigers commercial manager Chris Powell said: “We are really excited to be working more closely with Xscape and our huge new Sports Superstore gives us the opportunity to stock an extensive range of sportswear, not just our own official merchandise. New lines will include, NRL, NFL and NHL official merchandise, as well as rugby and football boots, protection and base layers,”
Chris added: “We’re also delighted to welcome the Oddballs charity into our store and we’ll be stocking their merchandise which helps raise awareness for testicular cancer. New lines will be arriving in our Sports Superstore every month including a golf range and official merchandise from some fantastic suppliers including XBlades, ISC, Canterbury, Reebok and Under Armour. It’s really exciting for us to be able to take the next step after a fantastic year of sales in our Tigers Den retail store in Carlton Lanes and online. The Tigers Den will still continue to stock our full range of official Castleford Tigers merchandise while our new Sports Superstore in Xscape will allow us to expand our sports offering beyond Rugby League.”
Xscape General Manager Jason Warren said: “We’re delighted to welcome the Castleford Tigers store to the Centre. The Sports Superstore is a great addition to the Xscape line up and it gives us a fantastic opportunity to collaborate with a local, iconic sporting brand.”
You’ll find the new Castleford Tigers Sport Superstore on the downstairs mall in Xscape, just passed Starbucks, and it’s open every day of the week from 10:00am till 6:00pm.
